Marriage on Mission



Ben Stuart encourages us to look at the lives of Priscilla and Aquila as we evaluate what it means to have a marriage that is on mission. The strongest unity is formed by a mutual commitment to a common cause, and there are three specific things we see in Priscilla and Aquila’s life that demonstrate a marriage that is on mission together. How does a marriage stay strong? By living for a story that is still being written!

Key Takeaway

After looking at the lives of Priscilla and Aquila we see what it truly means to be running after God’s mission. Marriage is strongest when we are on mission. We are called to use what we do have to advance the church and minister to those around us. Priscilla and Aquila are a good image of using what God has blessed you with to live on mission.
